Maling Memorial Prize for Outstanding Service to the School
“This prize goes to a student who has made a powerful contribution to the life of the school. Vincent showed great initiative last year when he led an investigation into the viability of joining Round Square. He subsequently became the inaugural leader of the International/Round Square committee. His excellent leadership of the committee led to a Round Square day in Term 2 and a very successful International Week in Term 3. He will be remembered for his excellent address to the boys in Chapel at the start of that week, and for his eloquent speeches to the whole school on the importance of a global perspective and the need to celebrate diversity. Vincent assisted with College promotion events, as well as Arts Week and he played a vital role in the student-led “De-stress the Mess” workshop in the September holidays. He has been an outstanding role model in his positivity, his commitment to the school and the respectful and considerate manner with which he treats all students and staff.”
